MY "BE NICE TO ME" DAY...

Aren't you just like me in the fact that, every now and then, it is FUN to be pampered...?
To have a BE NICE TO ME day ?
I love those days...they energize me, make me able to face the world !!
WELL...
Mr. Sweet Nothings left for work and I decided to have a
PAMPERED LADY DAY....
*
First, we have a STARBUCKS about 8 blocks from my house...a straight shot....not even any red lights !!
I had a devil of a time choosing what I wanted for my breakfast this day but finally decided on
CRANBERRY NUT LOAF....

O! HONEY!



After having a nice hot bath, I went in to have a haircut.
I didn't do toenails nor fingernails this time...I don't splurge very much on those kind of things and am not sure why...they aren't all THAT expensive and nothing makes me feel better than getting a pedicure...
SOOO, NEXT time, I will do that very thing....

*

By now, it's LUNCH TIME....

I do love pasta of any kind and especially noodles with salt, pepper a bit of butter and PARMESAN CHEESE..
Broccoli is a favorite "green" and garlic toast is just about my favorite thing in the whole world....
and, by golly, I just served myself on my favorite dinnerware,
LIBERTY BLUE...
pretty dishes will make absolutely ANYTHING taste at least 99% better !!
*
I even made myself a miniature 'centerpiece' ........
YUMM....I DID ENJOY MY LUNCH, sitting in front of the fire and the tv, watching
FOX NEWS....didn't even get depressed over the news 'cause this was my HAPPY DAY ! ;O)


After lunch...a trip to DILLARD'S, which is NOT my favorite store, by a long shot,
but needed...OK....WANTED this......

It was on sale....and I love this kind of suit...
plus the makeup I use, CLINQUE, is sold there and NO OTHER PLACE IN TOWN....
go figure !


When I got my silly self home from shopping, I needed a "fix"
so I fixed a COKE FLOAT...
(quit laughing, NikkiCrumpet...she always teased me about using the word FIXED )
UMMM, BABY...



AND finally, I called my cousin in HOUSTON that is a couple of years younger than me..that's her, on the left..
We were raised together and were more like sisters when we were young.
I don't get to see her very often any more but she will always be like my sister.
We had a great visit and I pledged to call her more often....
"I sure enjoyed talking with you, Skeet...I love you and will talk soon!"
*
***************************************************************

GOSH....WHAT A GRAND DAY I HAD...
I hope you will do the same for yourself really SOON... and, when you do, PLEASE post about it, WITH PICTURES!! I want to see how you pamper YOUR SWEET SELF !
A "BE NICE TO ME" DAY is so so GOOD FOR THE SOUL !!

XO bj

Chris said...

GM BJ, I so admire for treating yourself to a special day, I never do that, but I should. I do get my nails done and a pedicure, I guess that's for me. LOL
Have you tried the new Pepperidge Farm Cranberry and Orange bread, makes the best toast. And girlfriend, I'm with you with the garlic bread and pasta.
I'm still up to my eyeballs with painting. I hurt where I didn't even know I had body parts. :)As we finish each wall, I'm cleaning everything, so when I do finish, my house is going to be spotless.Yippee, it's not like that ofetn.

Love Ya,
Chris

It sounds like you had a perfect (and well-deserved) day, BJ. Your favorite foods, a fresh haircut, a new outfit, and a phone visit with your cousin ... does it get any better than that!

Thank you for sharing it with us.

Deanna said...

Hi BJ! I'm so glad that you had a 'Me' day! I need one of those right now. What a sweet centerpiece you made and the dish of the delicious food was so mouth watering!

I'll try and have a "Be Nice To Me Day" real soon!

Hugs,
Deanna :D

BTW, did you pick up the Valentine I made for everyone? If not, then by all means get girlfriend!!

Love ya!

Glenda, saved by grace said...

My goodness that sounds good!

Stacey said...

BJ, you are my hero! The news is very depressing these days and I think I need a day like that soon. Spring is coming some day soon...maybe I need some red toes!

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

I think that's great, we should all treat ourselves to a Pampered Day! Hmmm....I don't know if I've ever had a Coke Float! Maybe I should try one!

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Oh what a fabulous day BJ! I feel like you took all of us with you. And that coke float at the end of the afternoon really hit the spot for me, great "fix" if you ask me!!

Hugs, Sherry

Bo said...

Good morning BJ...what a marvelous thing to do...spoil yourself even if just for a day! The only thing that would be better is to do everyday...nah, then it wouldn't be special, would it? Hugs, ;-) Bo

JyLnC said...

I love your day! It sounded wonderful and I'm going to have to do a little lunch like you did. I love pasta with salt, pepper, butter, and a little Parmesan. Yum! Plus, a Coke float is almost as good as a Root Beer float.

Neabear said...

I felt like I was right with you on your "ME" day. I need to do one of those. I would so enjoy doing one of those kinds of days with my daughter and make it a "Nommy and me" kind of day. Yes she calls me "Nommy".

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I love this idea of a Be Nice To Me day! I am definitely going to incorporate this into my life!
